is cnn contributor. good to see you reuben. does michael bloomberg have a point there or would it be too knee jerk for either the president or candidate to start talking about gun issues right now? >> good to be back with you. i think too quick, too soon. i think what americans want is pretty much what president bill clinton accomplished after the oklahoma city bombing, a sense of empathy to help with the healing but never get in front of a story. never be seen as trying to shove these events into a preset agenda. clinton did not do that after oklahoma city. it would be a mistake to do that here. >> does this tragedy set the stage for either of these candidates to at some point address their platform as it pertains to guns specifically as we are just about three months away from people going to the polls? >> i would agree that when the time comes that conversation needs to happen. what needs to happen is the discussion that one individual can accumulate an arsenal of weapons without drawing the attention of authorities. whether you are concerned about domestic security or terrorism threa
to get right to cnn's jim acosta. he's covering mitt romney today delivering some major messages of his own in this race for the white house. jim acosta is joining us from boston right now. what's going on on this day as far as the republican presidential candidate, jim, is concerned? >> reporter: wolf, the back and forth in this campaign right now is all about four words the president said nearly a week ago, the words you didn't build that. the comment has the romney campaign building a new line of attack that is resonating with republicans. republicans hope it's a sign mitt romney is back in business. >> when the president said that, if you got a business, you didn't build it, come here and talk to brian. and you'll learn that in fact he did build this business. >> i take umbrage at the suggestion that people don't start and build businesses. >> now, i'm know some people that think what the president said was just a gaffe. it wasn't a gaffe. it was instead his ideology. >> reporter: on a day he was expected to stay behind closed doors, he was at a truck repair company near his boston
with breaking news. mitt romney one-on-one, speaking out on cnn. the gop presidential candidate is on the defensive tonight. his campaign added two new senior advisers after a rough few days. and now they're hitting back, accusing the obama campaign of stooping to new lows. the issue, once again mr. romney's involvement at bain capital where he made his fortune. the focus centers around when he finally broke ties with that firm. the obama camp is claiming mr. romney lied about his end date at bain. even suggesting his actions could be criminal. to counter attack, mr. romney went on a media blitz today. something he rarely does. he talked with cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta this evening. >> governor, thanks for joining us. let's talk first about this controversy over when you left bain capital. i'll put one of the documents in question up on screen. their sec filing stating that you were ceo at bain capital past 1999. when you say you left bain to run the olympics. why was your name still on these documents? and why didn't you clear this up sooner? >> well, i w
has had little effect on the latest cnn poll of polls which shows the race nearly deadlocked. but another poll from usa today and gallup could be more worrisome for romney. it shows a majority of americans want to see more of the gop contender's tax returns. something mrs. romney told abc is not happening. >> you just want to give more material for more attack. that's just the answer. and we've given all people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how we live our life. >> reporter: meanwhile, romney may be getting a lifeline from all people -- former house speaker nans si pelosi said earlier today that too much time in this campaign has been spent on the tax return issue. meanwhile, over in the senate john mccain tells cnn's piers morgan, his team found nothing in the tax returns that would have disqualified romney in his own vice presidential search four years ago. wolf. >> so i take it this notion that we had earlier in the week that a vice presidential running mate could be selected before he heads off to london for the olympic games and then
he misspoke in that conference call. let's bring in our cnn chief political analyst gloria borger in "the situation room" as well. the ad we just saw in dan's piece, part of a broader picture that the obama administration, the obama campaign is trying to project. >> as you know this is the summer when it's time to define your opponent. it's not rocket science here, wolf. what the obama campaign is trying to do is paint a very, very unflattering portrait of mitt romney. he is, according to the obama campaign, secretive, tax avoiding businessman who outsources jobs and cares nothing about the middle class. that is of course on top of his wealth. so it's a caricature but sometimes care ka churs can stick particularly when you're spending $25 million a month most of which is in negative advertising. so that can stick. and the problem for romney right now is that unless he releases his taxes or continues to -- or give some more information about his taxes or even bain, these questions will be raised. don't forget, wolf, you were there. these questions were raised by his republican oppo

for your time, we appreciate it. >> thanks, guys. >> cnn's jim acosta, who conducted that interview, joins me. along with cnn's chief political analyst gloria borger. there's clearly a strategy here. your interview, other network interviews as well, part of the strategy by the romney campaign. would you say the takeaway is that the campaign is very worried about this bain story and how it's unfolding? >> i think so, soledad. we got very late notice about this interview possibility. heard about it, about 1:00 this afternoon, and found out the governor was doing a round robin of interviews. because of the fact he said almost the same thing to all of us is an indication that, yes, they were working on this message and they wanted to get it out there. >> gloria, you were in boston. you just got back from the romney headquarters in boston. give us a sense of how the campaign is handling this and what changing they're making to deal with some of this. >> i can tell you, as jim said, that romney was outraged, the campaign was pretty outraged. it's clear, though, they believe, by setting up all th
and all of the men were in a meeting when the bomb went off. cnn does not have reporters or camera crews in syria right now, but arwa damon is watching this unfold from beirut, and arwa, we are talking about the president's closest advisers and a family member dead. how monumental is this? is this a turning point? >> well sh, it is difficult to that just yet. this is however an attack that has pierced the very core of assad's inner circle. a number of the officials you listed were pat of the oleet group who are around the president, and most certainly contains the most trusted advisers including his brother-in-law assef shawkat who is believed to be the strongman behind the scenes. this is the national security building we are seeing there in an area of damascus which certa certainly has an incredibly intention security presence as you would imagine and not to mention a number of plain clothes government thugs who effectively patrol the whole area, and this is certainly an inside job. someone had access to that building. now, the free syrian army, a bit of conflicting reports, but one of
insider trading, right? not exactly. cnn's dana bash and a producer have done some digging into the law. they discovered not just a lingering loophole but how it got there. >> reporter: this was memorable because it was so rare. president obama signing a bipartisan law congress passed swiftly and overwhelmingly. to make sure there's no insider trading in congress.s crowed about restoring trust in government. >> if there was any chance of fact of using information for personal profit, we were not going to allow it. >> closing loopholes to ensure that members of the congress play by the exact same rules as everyone else. >> reporter: but keeping them honest, cnn has learned that not all the loopholes were closed. here's why. the key to making sure lawmakers don't profit off secret information they learn on the job is based on a new rule. financial transactions over $1,000 must be reported in 45 days. >> so that the public could have more real-time understanding of what their members and what senior staff and other high government officials were doing with their finances. what kinds of tra
afford to pay more. and this is an idea that historically, including in cnn orc polls has polled well on how wealthier americans pay more money. but it also has trouble getting through congress. president obama backed the same idea in 2010. he tried but ultimately ended up signing a two-year extension for all across the board tax cuts from the bush era tax cuts. and wolf, i will say republicans now seizing on this. white house speaker john boehner saying this is just president obama trying to distract from the poor job numbers that we saw out on friday. >> what would happen -- i know you've been checking with your sources over there, brianna, if the house of representatives, which has a lopsided republican majority and the senate, which has a narrow democratic majority, but they're half a dozen democrats who may vote with republicans on this one. let's say they pass legislation to extend the bush tax cuts for another year for everyone. middle class as well as wealthy, would the president of the united states veto that legislation? >> white house press secretary jay carney said today h

have to tell you that cnn orc poll indicates that nationwide one thing is clear, the number one issue on voters' minds happens to be jobs and the economy. the november election may come down to a key question, which candidate is better able to handle the economy? a brand new cnn orc national poll suggests voters haven't made up their minds. president obama and republican mitt romney are in a dead heat well within the margin of error. >> what a president believes matters. >> reporter: today the obama campaign rolled out another ad in crucial swing states like riegtd here in ohio calling romney an outsourcer during his time running bane capital. it's part of a strategy to erode one of romney's key strengths. so far our polling shows independent voters crucial in this election prefer the presumptivive republican nominee on the economy by 11 points. part of the sale the obama campaign needs to make especially isn't the seven key toss up states is that the economy is getting better or that stagnation isn't their fault. >> we've added millions and millions of jobs and the economy is moving
will certainly be the star of the show. but cnn has learned that bill clinton, the former president, will also have a very, very prominent role. let's go straight to white house correspondent brianna keilar. the two men, as a lot of us remember, they haven't always had the closest relationship, have they? >> no, wolf. during the height of the last go-round, the democratic primaries where you saw barack obama and hillary clinton duking it out in 2007 and 2008, sources tell cnn former president bill clinton felt very bitterly towards president obama because he felt his wife had been mistreated. now some of the wounds did heal after the election when you saw president obama -- then president-elect obama appointing secretary clinton as his secretary of state. and now you have a situation where bill clinton is one of his most visible surrogates. >> when bill clinton took the stage at the democratic convention in 2008, the crowd went wild. ♪ at first they wouldn't even let him start talking. >> i am honored to be here tonight.
